Hello Jun. Thats amazing! How stable is the deadwood on Casuarina and what design do you have in mind?

Will,
by the way Casaurina's dead wood are pretty tough and resilient to rotting, specially if the collected specimen got it naturally.
im worried more on the possibility of die back effect, which has a bigger chance of happening on trees with so many deadwood like my tree. thats why i got to have lot of options in the design.

Hello Jun. I like your design very much. I hope you don't have problems with dieback, it looks very healthy to me.

I've just looked at it again and it doesn't look like a fresh collect. If your going to get dieback I would have thought it would have happened by now. Strengthen the tree by letting it grow without pruning for a while. How long has it been in the pot?

thanks Will,

il do that. its been a year or so in the pot... this new shoots are all new just a couple of months old. this tree is in coma for a few months after the original branches died out. then it woke up just after summer with new shoots coming out from different areas.

Sounds to me like you are over the worst. As I have said, unhindered growth will put on good roots and the new wood will thicken, creating a bigger barrier between the live wood and the deadwood. I don't know if Casuarina has a dormant period in your climate. If it dos i would let it grow until then. If the tree is then strong enough and you prune it, It may sprout shoots elsewhere as well.

thanks Will.

il keep that in mind, together with my other cauarina. the dormant period here is i think summer time, then these trees grows very fast in the rainy season around may to Jan.
